Premier League giants Liverpool have been afforded a boost in their ongoing pursuit of a key rumoured target, according to reports.
The player in question? Sofyan Amrabat.
Midfield all-rounder Amrabat, of course, proved a central cog in Morocco’s remarkable run to the semi-finals of the World Cup.
Afforded a starting berth in all six of his country’s outings in Qatar, the Fiorentina star shone on both sides of the ball, culminating in widespread calls for an inclusion in the Team of the Tournament.
Such stellar form, though, has too seen inevitable speculation regarding Amrabat’s future at club level begin to mount.
The last week alone has seen all of Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona named as keen suitors of the 26-year-old, who has not been at all shy in hinting at his readiness to seek out a move following the turn of the year.
And now, as alluded to above, one of this quartet of clubs have been afforded a boost in their efforts to beat out the competition for Amrabat’s signature.
As per a report from French journalist Santi Aouna, the midfielder has a favourite landing spot in mind, at least when it comes to the choice between Liverpool and Tottenham.
It is Jurgen Klopp’s side, it would appear, who boast the advantage as things stand, with Amrabat seemingly keen to take his talents to Anfield following the turn of the year.
